Zuzu male

2017-01-26

Adoption Pending!

CongRATs to the Hofemeier family!

Location: Oregon

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Zuzu is an American Hairless Terrier who had lived with her elderly owner and an AHT "sister" until a few months ago. When their owner died, the dogs both went to the local shelter, and the other dog was adopted. Zuzu is 10 years old and in excellent health. She is gentle and very sweet. Zuzu will follow you everywhere once she gets to know you, and is good with other dogs... and mostly uninterested in cats. Zuzu is house broken and very well behaved. This little 15 pound dog is a treasure. To see more of Zuzu's pictures please click here.

Mia-Shel female

2011-11-24

Adoption Pending!

CongRATs to the Becton family!

Location: Virginia

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
My name is Mia. After years of living with my family in WV, they decided I was too much trouble and took me to this place where dogs just disappear. A lady came to the shelter to see who needed help and looked at me. She said I was cute with my under bite. I have been in a foster home for five years and I wish I had a home of my own. I love to chase a ball, play tug of war, and best of all love to tear the insides out of stuffed animals. I need someone who understands the terrier breed. I tolerate all of the other dogs in my foster home but I wonít back down if confronted or if anyone (dog or human) tries to take my toy or try to sneak my food or treat . I canít be around cats as I would love to be able to catch those tempting things and shake them good. I would love to have all the attention just for me. I can be in a crate for about 6 hours without going outside. I sleep under the covers at night with mom and dad. I weigh about 15 lbs. and am between 12 and 13 years old. No children for me please! Here's a link to my photo album.

Badger male

2007-03-14

Location: Kansas

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
One look at Badger's face will tell you this guy is just overflowing with personality. There may be a little Boston Terrier in his lineage, as he has a very short "corkscrew" tail, undershot jaw, and black and white coloring. His undershot jaw gives him a bit of a pugnacious look and his character sometimes matches. He had been surrendered because no one had time for him anymore and he was tied up in the back yard all alone. Badger gets along fine with 12 out of 13 foster Rat Terrier "siblings" but took a dislike to one, whom he is determined to whoop every time he gets in the same room. Because of this chance of aggression if the personalities clash, Badger needs to be an only dog or with a non-dominant female. He is 7 years old and around 15 very solid pounds. He is a charming fellow -- likes people and is fine with children but untrustworthy around small animals, including cats. Badger will sleep quietly in a crate but will complain if left in the crate while everyone else is active. He is housebroken, using a dog door reliably. Despite his rather "tough guy" appearance, Badger's personality will win you over quickly when you met him. To see more pictures of Badger, pleaseclick here.

Lani female

2014-07-30

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lani is short for Solana, which is a Native American word for sunshine. Itís the perfect name for a gal who loves to lay by the pool and nap in the sun. While retired and living in Florida now, Laniís beginnings were quite different. Through research we have found that she is the result of the breeding of two NRTA foundation stock Rat Terriers. Her bloodline is 71.87% Decker. Her dam is Sycamore Flats Jackie and her sire is Sycamore Flats Tuffy. Lani was born 4/26/03, is 17.5 inches at the withers, and a skinny 25 pounds. She is sweet and gentle. Lani gets along well with her foster siblings but has been unsuccessful at getting them to play with her. She is a finicky eater, and requires a grain free diet to avoid skin irritation. During Lani's first couple of months in foster care she lived with cats and wanted to chase them, but she did not harm them. More photos of Lani are available here.

Donnie male

2016-01-29

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Donnie is a super sweet and active senior who was overlooked by adopters at the shelter. Was it because of his graying face? Was it because he's missing an eye? Why was this sweet, adorable older gent overlooked? But no matter - Donnie is now safe, and a Ratbone Boy. Look forward to updates - this guy is a charmer! For more photos of Donnie please visit his album.
